Any information would be appreciated. I acquired this one in a lot with a few others. The others are good, but this one I am not sure about and I still have the opportunity to return it. The badge itself has no flex to it at all. The details look sharp, but the head looks small to me compared to others. Thx.

Way too many variants for me to keep track of. Will keep this post current in hopes someone knows.

Sorry you have received no remarks as of yet. Can you post weight and measurements? That may help.

Hello
This one is referred to by the nickname "Slim-stalk" due to the slim silhouette of the k98.

Some collectors do attribute this one to the firm of Juncker.
This is due to hardware set-up matching the NS examples.

As "like" hardware set-ups were used by several different makers, I consider this attribution to Juncker circumstantial and further proof is needed to confirm this argument.
